SkincareAlready ancient Inca people knew the positive effects of potato extracts on skin. Potato proteins can be used in several ways to give benefits to skin.
One of them is reduction and prevention of skin irritation by means of the protease inhibiting activity that is available in one of the Solanic potato protein fractions. Specific activities and effects have been reported in patents (e.g. patent application Emden at.al., WO99059623A1).
